We had our Divorce Mediation meeting. The mediator sort of told us we weren't capable of mediation because it requires trust and everyone being on the same page. WHich is odd, because we weren't really fighting over assets or anything, it was actually civil in that regard. But we did bring up the things that have plagued our marriage.
Anyways, we talked for a while that night. Then, I went with the VAR and had it in her car. Got an entire conversation of her putting together her story with her affair partner. Best money i have spent in a long time. I will not be nuking his relationship because I dont fucking care at this point. His wife knew my wife cheated on me a long time ago, so this has been going on for a while, and she didnt tell me. Honestly, I want the quickest exit out of this relationship and as much as It pains me to say that, its whats best for my own good. My wife has turned me into a psychotic zombie, trying to know the truth, and searching for answers. She has completely manipulated me during this entire thing, turning everything about the affair into "the hurt that I have caused her, and the resentment she holds" She is a terrible person, and all my actions were never to hurt her and lie to her over and over. I wish them both well. She can have this man, she deserves him. She was a bridesmaid in this woman's bridal party, and when we were married this girl was the event manager the day of our wedding. I'll never know the truth, but I know enough to know when to run for the hills. I need to start getting my life on track and being the best father I can be.
Obviously my wife is a special kind of piece of shit, and I hope she has to live with this regret for a long time. The guy cheated on his wife to hook up with her, and acts as if he cares about her. He has a business and a busy life, so ultimately he wont be able to give her the time and attention she wants. (Im going to add in some snippets from their convo, just so you can see how fucking disgusting this all is)
WW: He wants answers, umm and now I’m like stuck, and I can’t fucking give it to him. I can’t give him the answers or he’s going to reach out to her and find out what’s actually been going on.
So now I feel like I need to leverage like actually trying to work on things to give him what he needs so he doesn’t reach out to you guys.
AP: I think you talk to your mom; I mean he has to sign in writing that he wont reach out to my wife. (Yeah, I asked for that) You go through the finalization of the divorce, and you have answers in counseling, and if not, your leverage is what you already have which is " You can reach out to AP and his wife and ruin their relationship, and I take everything, Take your pick"
WW: So, he would reach out to one of you guys, probably her, and figure out everything that’s been going on, umm if I tell him that divorce is the only answer, because he’s going to lose everything no matter what.
WW: I don’t know what she knows, I don’t know what he knows, but I know that our story needs to be on the same page.
AP: Yeah, I don’t know, I don’t have that story yet. Yeah, I can’t craft that story right now. But what I do know, is he going to force you to be in a relationship? You’re letting him dictate your life right now.
WW: Yeah, I told him last night, you’re holding me hostage to a relationship that I don’t want to be in.
AP: What did he say.
WW: He doesn’t see it that way, he said he is just being committed to his wife.
AP: But you don’t want to work on things, do you?
WW: NO, that’s what he is having a hard time with. He’s having a hard time with that answer. He doesn’t want to give me a separation, because he feels like it’s a way for me to have my affair to continue. Is what he says. So, he doesn’t want to give that to me until I give him answers. He just keeps on interrogating me of how long it is, how long it’s been, and he’s not letting me get away from those answers, so I have suggested getting in front of a marriage counselor so we can talk through things in an amicable way. Because we can’t talk through things by ourselves and keep having those conversations every night, because then I can’t be a parent to my girls. And that’s not fair to them. So, I asked him to stop doing that. Because after mediation we talked until like 10 o clock last night, and I’m like I can’t keep fucking doing this. Now you have who it is, and that’s the answer you wanted.
AP: I think the story is it happened way back when, and then it got reinvigorated. You know this summer.
WW: Are you ok with that?
AP: I mean that’s what my wife thinks anyway, so that will be consistent. Umm im not going to say that to her tonight. I need you to keep him away from her.
WW: Yeah, the only way that I can keep him away from her is I don’t know. If I pretend that I work out things.
AP: Sigh, that’s not the answer.
So with all that being said, hearing this shit almost made me faint. I knew it was all going on, but it still wasnt easy to hear. I typed it all out from their call to reference it. I know everyone will instruct me to NUKE, but I want out. I do not want to leave any chance of her fucking pulling me into divorce court!! I walked through everything today and said whats mine is mine, whats yours is yours, and you have to buy me out of the equity of the home. I should walk with a handsome deal. So she can have her affair, and i still get 50/50 custody, and she gets no alimony. I would sign on the dotted line right now for this. I want her out of my life. DONE.
